A new vocabulary for the 21st Century: Cognitive Democracy - The Governance Lab @ NYU

A new vocabulary for the 21st Century: Cognitive Democracy - The Governance Lab @ NYU | technoscience | Scoop.it

"This also helps us think more clearly about the possibility conditions for highly successful problem solving in democracies. We summarize these in the most cursory fashion (we hope to expand on this in further work). First, in contrast to existing epistemic accounts, cognitive accounts suggest that individuals need to be able to expose their different points of view to each other, rather than the polling of individuals in strict isolation from each other required by Condorcet’s Jury Theorem. This goes hand-in-hand with a different account of problem solving — rather than asking whether people can determine whether a given decision will be correct or incorrect, as Condorcet does, it asks when individuals will be able to discover hitherto-unperceived solutions within a complex landscape. Second, individuals need to be at least “weak learners” in the terms of statistical learning theory (Schapire and Freund, 2012). Individuals who are fundamentally obtuse, profoundly blinded by ideology, or whimsically perverse will detract from collective learning rather than help it. Third and related, as Mercier and Sperber suggest, cognitive democracy requires that individuals participating in democratic argument have some core commitment to the truth, even if they disagree strongly about what the truth is. People need not be as disinterested as Gardner (this volume) would like them to be, but neither should they be so warped by self-interest that they cannot see the truth, or allow themselves to care for it. Fourth, even if people disagree on how to solve a problem, they agree on what the problems are that need to be solved in the first place, and have some minimal common empirical standards (see also McAfee, this volume).

Clearly, these conditions are falsified in our everyday political experience."

Gilbert Simondon et l'invention du futur - Colloque de Cerisy 2013

Gilbert Simondon et l'invention du futur - Colloque de Cerisy 2013 | technoscience | Scoop.it

Récemment redécouverte, l’œuvre de Gilbert Simondon (1924-1989) inspire désormais de nombreux travaux novateurs en France (notamment à l’Atelier Simondon) et de par le monde. Une nouvelle génération de philosophes et de chercheurs en sciences humaines s’attelle non seulement à commenter cette pensée encyclopédique, mais aussi à la réactualiser en l’appliquant aux problématiques contemporaines. La philosophie de Simondon, qui balaie un spectre allant de la philosophie de la Nature à la philosophie des techniques, trace un trait d’union entre les enjeux scientifiques et technologiques actuels et les problématiques liées au devenir des sociétés humaines et de l’écosystème. Elle propose un système conceptuel ouvert - intégrant des notions telles que préindividualité, déphasage, transduction, modulation, milieu associé, métastabilité, transindividualité -, qui restaure les conditions d’un échange transdisciplinaire fructueux entre les sciences de la nature et les sciences humaines.

6 Things The Smartest Brands Do To Win People Over

6 Things The Smartest Brands Do To Win People Over | technoscience | Scoop.it

What marketers and Internet professionals can take away from these two examples is that the best idea always wins, not the biggest budget or the most over-the-top content.  The “best idea” is the concept that most effectively identifies the best strategic things to communicate to a target audience through the most appropriate, natural channels, and then executing the idea in a meaningful, authentic, and value-adding way. If you do this correctly, a simple 520 word editorial could have more positive impact for your brand than a $500k major conference keynote.

By investigating two very different cases of content creation around a brand, Clair Byrd proves that promoting the most expensive, over-the-top content isn't always the right answer.


The "best idea" is the one that has the biggest impact and sends the right message; not the one filled with the most gimmicks and the biggest budget. 


Clair provides 6 insightful tips on how to make sure that your content is doing what it's supposed to be doing - you'd be surprised how much time and money you could save by simply focusing on the right things.

Lexie Ruscheinski's curator insight, November 17, 2014 10:15 PM

I really enjoyed how they touched on stereotypes vs. demographics. What we think appeals to our audience could possibly be offensive or overdone. When I read this article it opened my eyes to the thin line between what demographic companies are targeting and what is actually the truth. For example, our society today believes all teenage girls are into Pumpkin Spice Lattes form Starbucks, when in reality there is a good portion of females who truly dislike anything to do with Pumpkin Spice. Other companies are lead to believe it is more widely received based on how it is advertised in their stores and social media when they make fun of "common white girls".

How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog

How To Integrate and Publish Curated RSS Feeds On Your WordPress Blog | technoscience | Scoop.it

Robin Good: For content curators who own or manage a WordPress-based website here is a great tutorial on how RSS feeds can be integrated and published directly (parsed) on any given web page. 


Authored by Vladislav Davidzon this excellent tutorial requires some basic technical knowledge on how to operate WordPress variables and functions and it provides precise guidance on how to:


- Utilize the Built-in Parsing Function to Pull RSS Feeds in and Turn their XML code into Content


- Divide Content into the Right Number of Columns for your Website’s Design


- Create a Friendly Display of RSS Content Using WordPress Loop Variables


From the tutorial: "Included only since version 2.7 of the WordPress software, the ability to parse RSS feeds as content and include that information into a template file is relatively new and its parameters are largely unknown even among the more advanced members of the WordPress development community at large.


Luckily, these parameters are easy to learn and customize, and they can turn a simple RSS feed into a great source of extra content and discussion on already-busy WordPress blogs.


Not only can RSS feeds be parsed by WordPress, but they can also be split up into columns and tabs.


This allows for feeds to actually be used as the primary source of content on some WordPress blogs, especially those that consider themselves a mere aggregator of outside content rather than a producer of unique news, reviews, or commentary on any topic."



Very useful. 9/10

Where To Find Good Alternative Sources for Content Curation

Where To Find Good Alternative Sources for Content Curation | technoscience | Scoop.it


Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to expand your horizon of content sources that you can use to find valuable content for your curated news channel, Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has done an excellent job of listing and describing the many alternatives available to you.


While many beginner curators rely on their set of RSS feeds and on simple web searches to find new and interesting stuff on their topic of interest, there are a dozen more content source types that can be tapped to find relevant stuff. This article helps you start learning where to look to find them.



Useful. Resourceful. 8/10

Des algues pour capturer le CO2 et lutter contre le réchauffement climatique | technoscience | Scoop.it

Les effets du réchauffement planétaire sont visibles dans le monde entier et de nombreux experts pensent que la situation ne ferait qu'empirer avec l'augmentation des émissions de CO2. Le réchauffement mondial est provoqué par l'émission de gaz à effet de serre (GES). Le CO2 (dioxyde de carbone) comprend 72% du total de GES émis, le méthane (CH4) représente 18% et l'oxyde d'azote (NOx) compte pour 9%.

De la contre-culture à la cyberculture

De la contre-culture à la cyberculture | technoscience | Scoop.it
Quand Place de la toile m’est échue il y a cinq ans maintenant, je suis allé voir Dominique Cardon pour qu’il me conseille quelques lectures de base sur les questions numérique. Et il m’a dit tout de suite : « il faut absolument lire Fred Turner, De la contreculture à la cyberculture (2006), c’est un livre essentiel. » Et j’avoue honteusement ne pas l’avoir fait, le livre était gros, disponible en anglais seulement, j’ai été rebuté. Par la suite, la référence au livre de Turner est très souvent apparue au détour d’un texte ou d’un propos, rendant chaque jour sa lecture plus urgente. Lecture encore retardée car entre temps, Hervé Le Crosnier m’a annoncé que sa maison d’édition en avait lancé la traduction en français. Paresseusement, j’ai attendu cette traduction, qui vient donc de paraître aux éditions C&F, sous le titre Aux sources de l’utopie numérique. Et là, je le dis sans aucune exagération, cette lecture m’a émerveillé. Le livre de Fred Turner est extraordinaire.
